The Whites have been the best side to watch in the Sky Bet Championship this season and that has won us a lot of plaudits.
Clearly, many are fans of Marcelo Bielsa and his playing style and in every game this year we have looked a big threat that has controlled possession.
Our stats of ball retention are right up there with the best in the country and though we are playing at a lower level, we’d give a lot of top-flight sides the run around.
We need to get promoted this season, then, and it would certainly be good to test ourselves against the likes of Manchester City.
Some have said we play like them the most outside of the Premier League and you can see that, whilst Jack Harrison has also made such a comparison:
???? | @Harrison_Jack11: "I spoke to Pep before I joined in pre-season. He admires the way Marcelo's teams play, and the philosophy is quite similar to Man City. The style we want to play is quite fitting for me"

Coming from City, he knows how they play inside out and, clearly, replicating them would be no bad thing at all.
